CRC DAY Continues for 33rd Year on June 12

CRC DAY Continues for 33rd Year on June 12

One of the longest-standing traditions at Crowley’s Ridge College will continue for a 33rd year, as CRC DAY is scheduled for June 12, 2022.

Since 1989, Churches of Christ and individuals across the nation have set aside a day to make a special contribution to CRC. The second Sunday in June is generally encouraged as CRC DAY, but any convenient Sunday for your congregation to host a special giving opportunity for CRC DAY is great.

The generous contributions received during CRC DAY are used to bless the students of CRC. Specifically, the contributions aid students with scholarships tied to our Bible program, those who receive Christian Service, and/or Heritage scholarships, and Christian academy graduates. In the 2021-22 school year, CRC awarded $167,386 in scholarships connected to these areas. CRC DAY is paramount in helping CRC cover these scholarships that are essential for many of our Church of Christ students.

Over the years, churches have chosen to get involved in CRC DAY in a variety of ways, including:

    • Taking up a special contribution for CRC DAY.
    • Writing a check from the church treasury for CRC DAY.
    • Placing a collection box for CRC DAY contributions from the congregation.

CRC 2021-22 Commencement Set for May 14

CRC 2021-22 Commencement Set for May 14

Crowley’s Ridge College’s annual commencement for both fall and spring graduates will take place on Saturday, May 14, at the Carter Activities Center on the campus of CRC at 11 a.m. 

A brunch will be hosted at 9 a.m. for graduates and their friends and family in the cafeteria, attendance is optional. 

All graduates are required to arrive in the cafeteria by 10 a.m. on Saturday for pictures and lining. 

Graduation practice will be held on Friday, May 13, at 4 p.m. All graduates are expected to attend the practice if available. 

We are honored to host former All-SEC defensive end, Academic All-American, New England Patriot, and Army veteran, Jake Bequette as our guest speaker for commencement.

Bequette was born and raised in Arkansas and was commissioned as an Infantry Lieutenant in the United States Army and was deployed to Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division.

The 2021-22 commencement will also mark the first-ever Goldeneers class for CRC, a special club of CRC alumni who are celebrating 50 years since their own CRC graduation. 

GRADUATES

Graduates are reminded that customization for caps and gowns is limited. Decor or bling can only be on top of the cap with nothing hanging down or standing up more than ¼ inch. In addition, there should be no inappropriate language, nothing on the gown, and all customization must be approved by the Registrar prior to walking. 

In addition, students are also reminded that this is a special occasion, so we expect you to dress accordingly. Business casual attire is required. Women should wear a dress or dress pants and dress shoes. No outlandish makeup and it is easier to wear your cap if your hair is down (would be a good idea to bring bobby pins to help keep your cap in place). Men should wear dress pants or khakis, dress shoes (boots are fine), and a collared shirt; ties are recommended but not required.

For more information, or questions, about commencement and the Goldeneers program, please contact Treka Clark at 870-236-6901 ext. 136.

Registration Now Open for Annual Lectureship Series

Registration Now Open for Annual Lectureship Series

Crowley’s Ridge College’s 21st annual Bible Lectureship Series will take place from April 3-6 on the campus of Crowley’s Ridge College at the Carter Activities Center.

The theme for this year’s lectureship is “Walk This Way,” a study of Ephesians and Colossians. 

Ephesians and Colossians were written by the Apostle Paul in hopes of providing further instruction to two churches looking to mature in their faith. Ironically, Paul, while shackled in prison chains, commissions both churches to walk worthily. The term is so crucial, that throughout these two correspondences, Paul uses it a total of eleven times. This emphasis inspired our theme. Therefore, our thesis for this lectureship is best stated by the imprisoned Paul, “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

Each night will feature praise and worship alongside a keynote, led by Dr. Devin Swindle on Sunday, Dr. Bruce McLarty on Monday, and Dr. Jimmy Adcox on Tuesday. 

To view our full schedule of events, please see below.

You can register online now, by clicking here

For more information on the lectureship, please contact CRC Bible Chair, Jeremy Pierce, at 870-236-6901 or at jpierce@crc.edu.

Dr. Tyrone Allen named CRC Distinguished Alumnus of the Year

Crowley’s Ridge College is honored to name Dr. Tyrone Allen as CRC’s Distinguished Alumnus of the Year. 

Dr. Allen is the seventh child of his family from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was baptized into Christ in 1976 in Morgan City, La.

He is a 1979 CRC alumnus, who would later get a BS from Harding University (1981) and a MA from Pepperdine University (1988) and began serving as a math teacher in 2001 with Montgomery County Public Schools, where he still serves today.

Since 2016, Dr. Allen has served as an adjunct math professor with the University of Maryland Global Campus.

Dr. Allen’s influence is felt beyond the classroom, as he’s served various Churches of Christ throughout Michigan, Arkansas, California, Tennessee, Washington, DC, and currently, Maryland since 1988.

Dr. Allen’s 45 years of service have been supported by his wife, Denise, who he met while he was a student at Pepperdine in 1981. The two have served the Churches of Christ since their marriage and continue to, as adult Bible teachers for the Silver Spring Church of Christ in Maryland. 

The couple enjoys spending time with their two granddaughters, Dyamonique and Gabriela, both of whom were baptized into Christ in 2016. They also enjoy traveling, as they have visited 37 states, Canada, the Caribbean, and Paris, where they always look for brothers and sisters in Christ to worship with.
